Additional comments

Pretty good sounding recording. This is the 13th consecutive night at Wembley Arena, the last one of a great series of sell-out shows which featured many guest performances. Very interesting to hear the music from the Cal soundtrack together with Paul Brady. Just before Going home, Mark Knopfler thanks the audience and says: "Well, it's been a great two weeks here, but we'll come back. We'll be back in the autumn now, Christmas time." After this Wembley show, the band had a week off and left for their Canadian and USA leg of the tour. The next show in London was again at Hammersmith Odeon, 17th December 1985. Complete show.
